Umm, we may have an IRL "Cougar Town" sitch on our hands!!!
Ummm, so, TODAY IN BIZARRE CELEBRITY FRIENDSHIPS?! Did y'all know that ginger-haired Brit Ed Sheeran and totes hilurr sitcom actress Courteney Cox bought a one-way ticket to bestie-land?? No?! Us neither, because seriously?!?! This celeb pairing is, like, even more shocking than that time when Max George fist-pumped with Mickey Rourke! But, don't worry -- we're internalizing and processing. Just give us another sec.
... And, we're back! Ed recently posted the above Instagram of him and Courteney presumably just shootin' the ish, drinkin' some Merlot, and talkin' the night away, which begs the question: HOW DID THESE TWO MEET????
Read more about this totally cray-cray celebrity couple, and watch Ed Sheeran's VH1 You Oughta Know In Concert performance after the jump.
While we don't yet have the full story, Ed's telling Instagram caption definitely sheds some light on this unlikely friendship: "My friend Courteney is nominated for a People Choice Award for favourite cable tv actress. She's never won one before and she lets me live in her beach house, so how's about we all vote for her and win her the damn thang eh? Safe. Vote here please kind people."
UMMM, dare we say it, but might we have an IRL "Cougar Town" sitch on our hands? Liiiiike, is "lets me live in her beach house" code for something a little more, ahem, after-hours? Perhaps, Ed's actually visiting Courtney's "Lego House"? You know, where he tends to "Monica's flower"?? (#SorryNotSorry) OBVIOUSLY, we're kidding, but real talk? It's deeeeeefinitely time to get a handle on our Ed Sheeran fan fiction problem.
+ Watch Ed’s perform "Give Me Love" at VH1’s You Oughta Know In Concert, and catch the You Oughta Know In Concert special when it airs Thursday, Nov. 21, at 9/8c.
